Serpentine Dance


Published 1895


Edison kinetoscope Serpentine Dance (1895), produced by the Edison Co., was banned because the brief film included titillating glimpses of the female performer's (Annabelle Whitford) undergarments. But content wasn't the only concern. "Indeed," notes Champlin in an article on the film production code for American Film, "it was the instant and immense popularity of the movies that stirred the first fears of their corrupting and inciting power."
